Good Earth Japan (GEJ) support farmers of 21 villages who live on the post minefield in Battambang Province, North West of Cambodia.
However, 2 villages of Andoung Neang and Anlongsvay among them had not been offered the real support for these 7 years.
The trainings of Rice cultivation, Frog raising and bag Mushroom cultivation in 2009 and 2010 for the farmers of Andoung Neang village was the last.

Both villages and Bung Sangke village which is newly added for the support have started to receive the Chicken raise training which are the one of Agriculture trainings which GEJ and Provincial Department of Agriculture (PDA) provide.

Recently, GEJ received the thanks message from the village chief of Andoung Neang village.

Village chief

I am Mr. Soun Buncham living in Andoung Neang village since 1997 moved from Sangke district, Battambang Province.
I have been appointed as the village chief of this village in 2002 and since then I was working with agriculture as same as the other farmers in the village.

I had experienced to receive the training of GEJ in 2009 and 2010 for Rice cultivation, Frog raising, and Bag mushroom. In case of Frog raising and Bag mushroom cultivation, farmers could not continue to work them because of difficulty of finding the material for them around the village , and stopped.
This year, GEJ came back to train farmers of this village again, and 47 farmers of young and others newly moved in to the village started to participate the Chicken raise training. (Please refer to the article of dated April 11, °»Checking their spirit and knowledge level at first°… of this WEB site.)

Myself was used to raise the chickens with the traditional way but it was not successful, and lost over 100 chickens by disease in last year for example.
Through a few time training already received, new method of chicken raise that all the farmers in this village never thought including how to make the chicken feed and use of the medicine when chicken get disease etc. shall be very effective, I think.

We hope that we will succeed with chicken raising for improve our life in this year.
We have a very good luck of that GEJ came back to this village which still need the support.
On behalf of the villagers, thank to GEJ for the support. We will do our best.

GEJ support farmers who live on the post minefield to become independent through like this agriculture training, improving living environment, and improvement of infrastructure.
